When Disney acquired 21st Century Fox in 2019, one of the good things the Mouse House got were the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four. While it remains unclear when the X-Men will be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (although little groundwork has been laid for this in projects such as Mrs. Marvell), this super privilege has a privilege of its own The Fantastic Four The movie set for Phase 6. And when you get to Marvel’s First Family, you can also expect to see their archenemy, Doctor Doom. However, this apparently The Fantastic Four Reboot, which WandaVisionDirected by Matt Shukman, he has an interesting plan for using Doom that is significantly different from the previous method The Fantastic Four Movies use a villain.
Along with his post in which he heard that Marvel Studios is putting together a book room for a Disney+ show called vision questAnkler reporter Jeff Schneider told him hot mic Co-host John Rocha It appears that Doctor Dom, aka Victor von Dom, will not be the one to antagonize Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Thing, and the Human Torch in The Fantastic Fourand that he will instead make his first appearance in the MCU after the main story ends. In Schneider’s words:
It was previously rumored that Doctor Doom will make his MCU debut during Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but that no longer appears to be the case. Alternatively, assuming Jeff Sneider’s information is accurate, Doctor Doom is appropriately saved instead The Fantastic Four, but we won’t see it until the credits start rolling in. This is in sharp contrast to 2005 The Fantastic FourAnd the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and 2015 The Fantastic Four I’ve seen the title team always face off in one form or another, but it also makes sense that you’d tease him in the final credits scene.
Although Doctor Doom is primarily known as the antagonist of the Fantastic Four, he has faced off against many other Marvel heroes over the decades. So just as Thanos was used as the main antagonist of The Infinity Saga and Kang the Conqueror was the main source of problems in The Multiverse Saga, Doom is easily a character who could be positioned as a threat to the entire MCU, not just the Fantastic Four. Furthermore, Doom played a major role in 2015 secret wars Happened, so the teasing Doom in The Fantastic Four It can lay the foundation for him to be a major player in it Avengers: Secret Warswhich will conclude The Multiverse Saga in 2026.
So if Dr. Dom isn’t the main villain The Fantastic FourSo, who could take this position instead? Fortunately, this superhero team has one of the best rogues gallery, so potential candidates include Mole Man, Mad Thinker, Molecule Man, Annihilus, and Diablo, among others. There is also the possibility that Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Ben Grimm, and Johnny Storm will be able to battle Rama Tut, who is later revealed in the comics as a variation of Kang the Conqueror, also known as Nathaniel Richards, a 31st century descendant of Reed Richards. . Within the MCU, it’s easy to imagine Rama-Tut being a variant of Kang from a different timeline/reality, rather than the same Kang the Conqueror we meet Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Because The Fantastic Four Delayed to February 14, 2025, it may take some time until we learn how Doctor Doom will fit into the specific MCU feature. Once that information is revealed, though, we’ll share it along with our coverage of other upcoming Marvel movies.
